A friend handed me a post it note yesterday with this saying on it: don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. It struck me as profound. I’ve been doing a lot of crying lately, buckets in fact, but not much smiling. I can’t ignore the tragedies of the past year, but I don’t have to ignore the joys either. Those belong to me as well.
Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge
Climbing rocks and not falling to my death
Comparing silly socks
Drinking wine and doing taxes with my best friend (don’t send the auditors, please)
Snuggling and laughing with my son
